3.5 greatcjbizzlebizzle | May 1st 19

The Language of Injury straddles the border between metalcore, mathcore and hardcore but finds influence from so many different core and metal corners it really isn't necessary to try to pin a genre on this one. What does Ithaca do really well here? They bring the heavy with ample breakdowns sewn into the fold between the riffs that are often as melodic as they are dissonant. This balance sets a mood that is at times purely angry but at other times more melancholy and it is all blended together seamlessly. There is just a breadth of well crafted lead guitars, clever chord implementation and dissonant twang throughout this one. The vocals are aggressive and super intense when they need to be but cleans are well placed to give some relief because the majority of this one is loud and heavy. While the production isn't bad it fails to highlight just how raw and passionate the heavy vocals are and there feels like there is gain on them and they are distant in the mix. Also the band has great riff-writing skills but the transitions between them often come off as rushed. They could work on building more tension between the heaviest sections to accentuate just how intense those heavy bits are. A great full length debut with passionate anger and awesome dynamics between breakdowns and the melodic and dissonant guitar work.

4.0 excellentChino smoking it up! | February 4th 19

Hell yeah! These friends have an exquisite manner to achieve melody plus "This fuckin slaps". As I pay attention to some backvocals and they're gorgeous. A weird Rolo Tomassi beatdown m/ girl on vocals.rrecd Tracks - The Language of Injury; Slow Negative Order; Youth Vs Wisdom.
